    Events are classified as either a Special Event or a Major Event (see below). For each scheduled event there is a date for Playstation 3 League and another day for Xbox 360 League. For the major events – the dates are already set at the beginning of the season (exact time is still under consideration). Dates for the special events (which generally will be of smaller scale) will be announced during the regular season.

    Special Events (Round Robins)
    - 1 point is given to each player participating in these events. These events will usually be smaller in size than the major events (This allows scheduling events during the weekdays).
    - Event rules are flexible for each event (This gives variety to the season).
    - Regions are variable and flexible. Player pool does not have to be within the same Division.

    Major Events
    - Number of Points given to each player depends on number of players.
    - Event rules – No Character Switching / First Portion: Round Robin / Final Portion: Single elimination, 2 out of 3.
    - Regions are defined and constant. Player pool is only within the same Division.

    Placement Points for Major Events (Tentative)

    Update first post to have the dates for Round Robin #4. Remember that for the non-major events, players with schedule conflict with the time/date of events can go on a standby list of alternative dates (see the sign-up threads).
